Apartments Near Hunter College


With more than 23,000 students, Hunter College is a haven for young people who want to live and study in Manhattan. Hunter College is attractive to bright and artistic students who thrive on the opportunity to earn creative degrees in art, film, music, dance and theatre. But it is not just the arts that bring young minds to Manhattan. Hunter College has a growing reputation for scientific research and excellent programs for those interested in health professions. In 2012, the university announced a partnership with Sloan Kettering Cancer Center for a new nursing, science and health professions building on the Hunter College campus.

With a campus stretching along the Upper East Side of Manhattan, housing can be quite expensive. The Office of Residence Life provides just three residence halls on campus and receives far more requests than it can fill. So, with limited student housing at Hunter College, only a small percentage of students actually can live on campus and many opt for off-campus housing near Hunter College instead.

Hunter College attendees commute in from all over the city and the diverse student population includes students from all over the United States, as well as students from more than 100 different countries. Students who opt for Hunter College off-campus housing have a variety of options. They can choose to live in Gramercy, East Village, Union Square, Flatiron, or the Lower East Side. Of course, many Hunter College students travel in from other parts of the city too.
